I know what you are talking about, but still not $125 high, more like $50 or $60 high. :)   Actually, they have decreased in price considerably the last 12 months and I have seen the last few sold go for less than $25 each.

I am guessing that the seller probably looked on ebay before pricing and found this one:




** expired eBay auction **




Its been up for a long time.  The last Central Castings influx of price I think was a acaeum hype thing that has settled back down now.

Not really an auction, but I was poking about abebooks.com, just for fun, and I stumbled upon a Steading of the Hill Giant listed for the low-low price of $1275. I think I'll buy 50 at that price...

What the hell?

$30 for the three original Traveller rulebooks...and no box?  Gotta love this bit of BS in the description:



It is very rare to find all three books together in such great shape.




Whatever... :?

Booty went high? Hell no. His two Lairs went for under 100, which was astounding.

Booty used to be one of those books that would sell for $200+.  Noble Knight sold their last 2 copies for $250.  I think Wayne sold a copy out of his store for $250 as well.  But there has really been a rash of them on Ebay lately - at least 4 them in varying price ranges but as low as $70.  Calithena also sold one recently too.

The Lairs did go fairly cheap and the Demons and Notmen sold for around what I thought it would  <shakes fist at Lance again> :)

That is completely f'ed up.  But looky here:




** expired eBay auction **




The current high bidder tp1451 was the bidder that pushed the previous Space Opera auction up to $99....and now he is doing it again.  Some people have no patience at all.  :scratch:

Damn, I feel like an idiot. I could've picked up two of those (Space Opera) for a combined $30. Should have, and then turned around and dumped 'em on eBay. Sometimes I want to smack myself that I'm not in this for reselling...

I am in a bit of shock over this one  8O  :

But that's what happens when you have a couple of crazy people shooting it out.  I seem to recall the last few selling in the $5-$20 range but that was last year.

with acaeum notice of auction looks like $40-45 support bidding possibly about same as seren if noone follows that oneoff as if that indicated the true value. $20 range yes but must have missed $5 :) :)

A couple of Acaeum members both wanted it.

Mention and discussion on the Acaeum does drive up prices.

My copy has staple rust.  I'll take offers....
